Chelsea Grin – ‘Suffer In Hell’

It feels like deathcore maestros Chelsea Grin have been gone a long time. Well, they sort of have – their last album ‘Eternal Nightmare’ was released in 2018, they released the standalone singles ‘Bleeding Sun’ and ‘Blind Kings’ during the pandemic in 2020, and though the hunger

Dayseeker – ‘Dark Sun’

We all love music so much because it provides us with an outlet. It doesn’t matter if you’re a casual listener or one of the talents creating it – it provides an escape, therapy, an unbiased ear, a helping hand and so much more, and when bands

LIVE: Wage War / The Devil Wears Prada / Siamese @ Electric Ballroom, London

It’s been a good year for metalcore, hasn’t it? If we’re being honest it’s been a good few years for metalcore, let’s not kid ourselves, but this year has felt different and it’s largely down to the full revival of the touring circuit. Bands have been held back for

LIVE: Polaris / Alpha Wolf / Great American Ghost / Stepson @ Electric Brixton, London

It’s Saturday night and Brixton is buzzing like it always is, but a particular pocket of it is buzzing a little louder than usual. That pocket is right around Electric Brixton and the area directly outside of it where a swarm of black-clad metal lovers are gathered,

The Devil Wears Prada – ‘Color Decay’

When we sat down with The Devil Wears Prada’s guitarist and vocalist Jeremy DePoyster last year around the release of the ‘ZII’ EP, he told us that he and the band wanted to completely rethink the way they approached releasing music. Following in the footsteps of bands like Bring

Stray From The Path – ‘Euthanasia’

Lots of bands are angry, but no one communicates it quite like Stray From The Path. The New York/UK-based band have been an ever-raging fire for over a decade, stoked by capitalism, racism, fascism, political complacency and so much more, and every passing year (or week as it seems

The Callous Daoboys – ‘Celebrity Therapist’

If you’ve been missing The Dillinger Escape Plan and The Chariot, say hello to your new favourite band. Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, sextet The Callous Daoboys (an actual band, not someone that’s too drunk trying to say The Dallas Cowboys) and their brand new album ‘Celebrity Therapist’ provides a

Spite – ‘Dedication To Flesh’

If you’re a metalhead that likes your metal to be so far over the heavy side of the line that it makes Slipknot sound like they write Disney soundtracks, then Californian quintet Spite are probably already a very large glowing dot on your radar. Just in case

Norma Jean – ‘Deathrattle Sing For Me’

It feels like you can’t write a review nowadays without mentioning the impact that the last couple of years have had on the music industry, but it really did have quite a big impact on Norma Jean. With touring at a complete halt, removing both income and the

LIVE: Spiritbox / Caskets / Vexed @ O2 Academy Islington, London

A little over two years ago in March 2020, Spiritbox were on tour with After The Burial, Make Them Suffer and Polar, making their way across Europe in anticipation of making their UK live debut. The day they boarded the ferry to travel to the UK the entire
